Albuquerque Hispano Chamber Golf Classic 2018

Albuquerque Hispano Chamber Golf Classic 2018

Dancing and golfing for educational scholarships

The Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce knows how to put on events, and the Hispano Chamber Golf Classic 2018 is the biggest event of the year where 100% of the profits go to educational scholarships.  With some 36 foursomes out on the greens, a lot of local students will be benefiting from participants' generosity.  My contribution was to go out and make as many photos as I could in the short time I had available to be on the golf course!  What did I learn?  A lot of dancing goes on at a AHCC golf event!

Women's Summit 2018 Albuquerque Event Photography

A great debut event in Albuquerque!

I have known Aleitress Owens from many networking events in the past year and a half in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  When she asked me to sponsor her event, Women's Summit 2018, I said I would be glad to and donated a headshot session.  She also asked if I would attend and take a few photos, which I also gladly did.  The venue, called The View, had great natural light and very stylish decor with a fantastic layout.  This, combined with the women and men in attendance, made for very easy candid event photography!

Go Behind the Dream Donut Mart Albuquerque Event

Go Behind the Dream Donut Mart Albuquerque Event

Yelp ABQ along with the Hispano Chamber of Commerce have been putting on a series of events this summer called Go Behind the Dream featuring immigrant owned businesses from around Albuquerque, New Mexico.  I was somewhat familiar with the story of Tahir Gauba and how he built up Donut Mart in ABQ, but through this event I really learned his family's story of moving from Pakistan and becoming a strong member of the community halfway across the world.  I lived abroad for 9 years in Asia, but always knew some day I would return to the U.S.  When you find some place that feels right, you can call it home permanently though!

Rail Yards Albuquerque New Mexico TapIntoABQ Event 2018

Rail Yards Albuquerque New Mexico TapIntoABQ Event 2018

I have explored many haikyo (abandoned places) around the world, but I have never photographed an event in one before!  Likewise, if you have been to the Rail Yards Market before, maybe you have never seen the Rail Yards of Albuquerque quite like this either!  Inside the massive hangar, even seating for 180 people looks small.  That is what I discovered photographing the 2018 TapIntoABQ event for the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce.

Ribbon Cutting Event Albuquerque New Mexico Kangen Water

Ribbon Cutting Event Albuquerque New Mexico Kangen Water

I learned a lot at this ribbon cutting event in Albuquerque, New Mexico for Kangen Water.  I was surprised that according to their acidity metrics, tap water is better for you than the two most popular bottled water makers!  The Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce were very good hosts once again.  If I lived closer to Kangen, I would be a member of their store where you can bring in your own water jugs and get them refilled.  There is also a counter top machine for sale to purify the water right in your own home, but for me, it is just a little out of budget at the moment!
